Tuesday night (9/27), Opry member Vince Gill invited Rascal Flatts to join the Grand Ole Opry. Gill surprised to group on stage with the invitation, after they’d finished performing “Bless The Broken Road.”
Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, members of Rascal Flatts, will be inducted Saturday, Oct. 8. The induction will take place during the Opry’s 86th birthday weekend. The show will broadcast live on GAC at 8 p.m. CDT.
“Each and every time Rascal Flatts visits us at the Opry, the band generates an absolutely electric response from the audience,” said Pete Fisher, Opry Vice President and General Manager. “While racking up some of the biggest genre-defining hits of the past decade, Gary, Jay, and Joe Don have also demonstrated the high regard they personally hold for the Opry and its members.
In addition to Rascal Flatts, Charley Pride, Ronnie Dunn, Craig Morgan, Crystal Bowersox, and Ricky Skaggs are among artists scheduled to perform during the Opry’s 86th birthday celebration.
